The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has partnered with Stadtwerke Bonn (SWB), the public transport company of Bonn, to help promote the fact that the German city is the home of the Paralympic Movement’s global governing body.
A branded IPC tram promoting the Paralympic values of courage, determination, inspiration and equality will now be part of Bonn’s public transport system for the next three years.
The tram will also feature video content about Para-sport.
Anja Wenmakers, marketing and sales director of SWB Bus und Bahn, said: "We move more than 92 million people per year and stand for a sustainable mobility in Bonn and the region.
"We are delighted about cooperation partners like the International Paralympic Committee, who support sustainable sport for people with an impairment and promote environmentally-friendly mobility."
IPC chief executive Xavier Gonzalez added: "I would like to thank the SWB, Anja Wenmakers and her team for making this project a reality.
"The city of Bonn is the home of the IPC and the Paralympic Movement.
"From here we organise the Paralympic Games, one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
"This tram will help us to reach out to the citizens of Bonn and spread our message of making for a more inclusive society for people with an impairment through Para-sport."
In January, IPC President Sir Philip Craven officially opened a new building at the organisation’s headquarters.
The building has become the home of the Agitos Foundation, the development arm of the IPC, as well as staff from IPC sports.
It is the latest addition to the IPC’s headquarters, which were first opened in 1999.
